The Angola Village Board had a quick and concise meeting on Monday evening. No major issue was discussed in length, however, many items were brought to the table.
Clerk Treasurer Linda Giancarlo discussed an upcoming event that will take place in the Village Hall at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 15. Local landlords have been having complaints about their tenants. Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) will provide a workshop for landlords, teaching them the logistics of fair housing laws.
In further business, the board discussed the deteriorating homes of the village.
“No more zombie homes,” said Mayor Howard Frawley. Squirrels have been found in the pools of these homes, in addition to other unattractive qualities of these houses. “I feel sorry for these people in our village,” said Frawley.
An increase in rates for two facilities were discussed. The county wants to raise plowing .5%. There will also be a 2.6% increase from the sewer department for Erie Sewer District 2.
• The board approved a proposal from GAR Associates to appraise 3.3 acres of vacant land owned by the Village of Angola located on the east side of South Main Street across from Newton Street for the cost of $900.
• There was an approval of the end of year budget transfers for the year 2012-2013.
